Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery Releases First Trailer And Lures You With Puzzle Challenges

Finally! The trailer for THE GLASS ONION: A KNIVES OUT MYSTERY, film maker Rian Johnson's sequel to his delicious whodunit movie KNIVES OUT has been released. Detective Benoit Blanc (Daniel Craig) is back to solve another murder!

These days, many trailers tend to give away much more than Red Dot Diva thinks they should. So, it is refreshing to see the smartly crafted teaser for the THE GLASS ONION showing you just enough intrigue to draw you in.

Close friends of tech billionaire Miles Bron (Edward Norton) receive invitations to his private Greek island. The group are shown trying to solve a series of puzzle games (wait, are these clues??). But then, things start to go wrong once the party ends. Someone gets murdered. Enter Benoit Blanc and his neckerchief, who must use his investigative prowess to ‘peel back the onion’ and find the culprit. The sunny trailer about a gathering of well-heeled elites, who most probably already have frictions with each other, gives off serious Agatha Christie “Evil Under The Sun” vibes.

Besides Daniel Craig returning as the lead, THE GLASS ONION boasts of a star-studded ensemble that includes Edward Norton, Janelle Monáe, Kathryn Hahn, Leslie Odom Jr., Jessica Henwick, Madelyn Cline, Kate Hudson, and Dave Bautista. Based on the snippets seen in the trailer, Red Dot Diva thought Kate Hudson's luminous fashionista Birdie Jay and Janelle Monáe's strong-willed tech entrepreneur Cassandra ‘Andi’ Brand stood out, and made her more curious about the stakes in Benoit's latest case.

Rian Johnson has been pegged as ‘controversial‘ ever since he directed STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI. The second instalment of the sequel trilogy was so polarising that fans of the franchise are still going head to head about Johnson's take of the galaxy far far away. For the record, Red Dot Diva thinks he is brilliant and a visionary. Not to mention, his bravery for not crumbling at all when toxic Star Wars fans were out in full force.

THE GLASS ONION premieres at the Toronto International Film Festival on Sept. 10, and will begin streaming on Netflix on Dec. 23. As a long time Agatha Christie fan, Red Dot Diva cannot wait to see what kind of bloody shenanigans Johnson will unfold in his upcoming homage to the genre.

And, instead of twiddling your thumbs waiting for the movie to premiere, Rian Johnson specially invites you to solve a series of THE GLASS ONION: A KNIVES OUT MYSTERY puzzles! Head to this website (, and get your detective brain juices flowing.
